Buyer's market.  I think it's easier for everyone.  It is far less chaotic.

I prefer a sellers' market - not like the one we're in now but, a near-neutral sellers' market.

Why? If you have sellers, you can move through some inventory quickly. If you have buyers, they understand the need to get off of the fence and don't spend a lot of time pondering - nor do they have a ton of homes to tour before buying!

I prefer a balanced market.  I remember during the recession when buyers were beating up on sellers. Now, it is the opposite. The best market is one where everyone walks away from a transaction feeling satisfied.

There are "Seller's Markets" and there are "SELLER'S MARKETS"! According to NAR and CAR a normal market is 4-6 months supply of invnetory. Here in the Coastal regions of California our MSI (month's supply of inventory) is way below that. Here in the "Wine Country" of lovely Sonoma County, our MSI is 1.5 with a Days on the Market (DOM) of 33 days a 40% DROP over last year! I'd prefer something on the other side of insanity myself!

This seller's market is a great time for sellers to get top dollar for their home. But, it's not as simple and sticking a sign in the yard. The right Realtor will get it sold fast and with the maximum net to the seller.

A Seller's market. Listing homes requires less effort than working with Buyers. A good explanation of this is included in Gary Keller's book, "The Millionaire Real Estate Agent."

I have learned a lot through every market in San Francisco and San Diego since 1999...but the last 6 years have been the best market of my career.

To answer your actual question, buyers are easier to get than listings, so I like sellers markets, I like the challenge.
